Ernesto Ferreyra, born in Cordoba, Argentina, he has called such diverse locations as Mexico City, Montreal, Berlin, and Ibiza home at one time or another over the past decade. His performance schedule both as a DJ, solo live act, and as half of the celebrated duo Chic Miniature with Guillaume Coutu-Dumont has been hectic enough to make mere mortals give up in disgust just trying to determine their current time zone. Things aren't likely to slow down anytime soon with Luciano increasingly wanting Ernesto at his side to open or close his own epic sets. Yet despite all these comings and goings, he has somehow managed to craft an album that sounds less the soundtrack to some lonely wandering vagabond's tale, then that of a wise and well-travelled man reflecting on the diverse experiences and places that have shaped him, anchored by an ever-present, ass-moving low-end pulse. For Ernesto, El Paraíso De Las Tortugas is a paradise of the mind, you see, and what good would paradise be without a little dancing to forget your troubles here and there? From the swirling aerial disco maneuvers of the album's opening and closing, heart-wrenching laments to chronic pain and a father lost along with 30,000 others to the Argentinian dictatorship, shuffling deep pocket house, the peak-time bass acrobatics at the album's core, through the psychedelic jazz meanderings of the title track, Ernesto proves himself to be a master craftsman of both moods and grooves as diverse as the experiences he has lived. If this is what the turtles are partying to in paradise, we'd all do well to find a shell.
